There are a number of reasons to choose Thailand as a Southeast Asian destination. But even then, visitors might be divided in terms of what they get out of their experience, especially if they have a limited budget. Here are two of Thailand's best destinations, and why visitors are most likely to travel in either of these places.

Among two of Thailand's best destinations, many tourists would most likely visit Bangkok. These are the following main reasons:


The capital city is not just the core of the nation's industry. Bangkok is also the country's cultural center. Located in Bangkok are the ruins of the ancient city of Ayutthaya, the seat of the Siamese kingdom and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Temple of the Golden Mount also houses the country's biggest collection of Buddhist relics.


One of the most popular reasons to visit Bangkok is its nightlife. Kao San Road is teeming with neon-lit bars and street-side bistros. The most popular location, however, is the Siam Square. Bangkok lives up to its reputation as a place of excitement.

Shopping & Entertainment

Speaking of Siam Square, this place is home to the city's best bargain shops. In terms of entertainment, one of the most renowned establishments in Bangkok is the Lumpini Stadium - known for hosting the country's most prestigious Muay Thai tournaments.

Apart from Bangkok, Phuket is another place worth noting. Here are the reasons why travelers would choose this as an idyllic Southeast Asian destination:


The first thing that always comes to mind for anyone who would visit Phuket is 'beach.' This province is a well-known vacation spot for outsiders. In fact, this place was the of Leonardo Di Caprio's famous coming-of-age film (The Beach).


As a result of its tropical landscape, Phuket conjures the very idea of relaxation. This province is the most likely destination that expat retirees would choose to spend their twilight years. Phuket lives up to its reputation as a place of serenity.  

Cruising & Wildlife

Being the doorway to Thailand's hidden remote islands, cruising (island-hopping) is a mainstay activity for most vacationers. The neighboring keys also host a lush flora and fauna that eco-tourists would definitely love to explore.
